Netflix Recreates Greatest Kisses in Cinema History

Chris Garrity from the communications team here.
In celebration of Valentine's Day and great movie kisses, we invited America to make video recreations of the most memorable movie kisses of all time at www.netflix.com/greatestkiss. More than 400 couples submitted kisses online for the contest and this past Friday, three lucky couples were invited to recreate their movie kisses live inside New York's Grand Central Terminal on custom-made movie sets for a crowd of hundreds. The couples were also featured on the Today Show on Friday morning:

The finalists Alonya Eisenberg and Darren Lanning of Los Angeles performed a scene from "Back to the Future," Damian Acosta and Megan Leyko of New York City performed "Titanic," and Lacey Maynard and Kaleb Kohart of Colorado Springs, CO won with their portrayal of "Gone With The Wind." Netflix presented the winning pair of kissers, Lacey and Kaleb with a trip for two to Las Vegas, including airfare, two nights' stay at a posh hotel, romantic dinners and world-class entertainment.
